  1. Cognitive Constellation Management Scheduling

    SBC: Assured Space Access Technologies            Topic: H9

    We have built our existing Freedom Platform as a cloud based SAAS system with one main goal: simplicity. Every feature we add is driving towards a vision of reducing the complexity of ground system operations and access. nbsp;We propose a technical solution that removes much of the constellation planning daily grind from the customer so they can concentrate on exploiting their data. The end result ...

  4. Autonomous Agent Cognitive Architectures for Human Exploration

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: H6

    Deep space human exploration missions present a number of challenges. The distance from Earth makes communication less reliable and mission management more complex, and places a greater burden on human crews. Managing the complexity of the various onboard systems, processes, and resources, including health systems, payloads, etc., will present new kinds of crew challenges and stresses not experien ...

  8. Reliable Non-Swaged Cathode Heater Designs

    SBC: Orbion Space Technology, Inc.            Topic: Z10

    To ensure high reliability, traditional cathode heaters undergo complex material inspections, challenging manufacturing ops, time-consuming thermal/cycle testing, onerous electrical testing, and difficult-to-assess X-ray inspections, and even after executing all of the aforementioned qualified/heritage procedures a high percentage of as-built heaters fail one of the many acceptance tests, which is ...
